This statement is too broad.  Medium and long tele with the RD back will be
ok.  The issue with the RD back will be the same issue as with any less than
full frame system, the multiplication factor and the difficulties with wide
angle shooting.   The rumored super wide angle lens (16mm, 17, 18, 19
anybody) designed for digital could be an acceptable stop gap solution until
the full frame back is completed for the next R body, which will come
sometime about 2006.

2006?  Remember where you heard it first.  :->)
